What type of Programs we help with
General liability insurance (GLI) is sometimes called business liability insurance or commercial general liability insurance. This type of liability insurance coverage helps protect your business from claims that it caused bodily injuries or property damage to others. Without general liability coverage, you’d have to pay for these claims out of pocket.
Liability insurance coverage helps protect you from costly general liability claims that can happen during normal business situations, such as:
You or your employees representing a client
Meeting with clients face to face
Working on or with another person’s property
Using third-party locations for business activities
Advertising your business
You may also need this coverage if your clients request it. Many clients want to confirm you have general liability coverage before they sign a contract with your business. You can prove you have general liability insurance with a certificate of liability insurance. Get increased protection for your business with commercial auto insurance to cover you, your employees and the vehicles you operate, lease, rent or own.
Is General Liability Business Insurance Required by Law?
State laws don’t usually require business owners to carry general liability insurance. But it’s still a good idea to have this liability insurance coverage. If a customer sues your business and you don’t have coverage, it can put your business’ finances and your personal assets at risk.
It’s important to understand your state’s insurance laws. Work with a local insurance agency or our dedicated small business insurance team to help you choose the right business liability insurance.
